Wins for Glens, Blues and Crues in Women's Premiership

Glentoran made it six wins from their first six games in the Women's Premiership as they beat Larne 3-0 at Blanchflower Stadium.

The reigning champions open up a three-point lead over Cliftonville, who are not in league action this weekend.

A hat-trick from Eve Reilly helped Linfield record back-to-back victories as they saw off Derry City 5-1 at Midgley Park.

Crusaders left it late to snatch a 1-0 win against Lisburn Ladies at the Bluebell as they brought to an end their four game winless streak.

Glens record comfortable win

Rachel Rogan broke the deadlock for Glentoran on 22 minutes as she raced onto a pass from Emma McMaster and coolly finished.

They were frustrated by an improving Larne side for the remainder of the first half and large parts of the second half, before substitute Kacey Weir doubled the hosts' lead on 75 minutes.

Captain Jess Foy added a late third in injury time with a volley as the Glens continued their winning start to the season.

Ruthless Reilly sinks Derry

Derry raced into a shock lead at Midgley Park with Tara O'Connor-Farren opening the scoring after six minutes.

Their advantage would last just two minutes as Northern Ireland international Keri Halliday found an equaliser.

The prolific Reilly put the hosts in front for the first time on 14 minutes and she then got her second and the Blues' third on 21 minutes.

Reilly completed her hat-trick soon after the restart with substitute Alexandra Clarke adding a fifth as Kaci Derry was sent off for the Candystripes.

Crues end winless run

Crusaders had been in a bad run of form in the league prior to their meeting with Lisburn, having lost three of their last four games in all competitions.

There was little to separate them and fellow strugglers Lisburn in a battling first half at the Bluebell.

The game looked to be drifting towards a goalless draw until Crusaders struck at the death, with Jessica McGuinness scoring in the 95th minute to claim the much-needed win for the Crues.
